An incredible Harry Potter and Game of Thrones crossover happened when actress Maisie Williams posted a truly perfect selfie on Sunday. She and Daniel Radcliffe smiled alongside Maisie's Game of Thrones costar Hannah Murray and Doctor Who's Jenna Coleman. Knowing just how magical the picture would be and just how excited fans would get, Maisie wrote, "I think this photo is gonna make the world implode . . . Last night was really great. #sdcc2015." The group posed together at Comic-Con, where the Game of Thrones audition reel played for the audience at the show's panel. Of course, this isn't the first crossover between the two beloved franchises. In May, it was Daenerys Targaryen and Neville Longbottom hanging out when Emilia Clarke and Matthew Lewis posed for a picture together on the set of their upcoming movie, Me Before You. »
Originally titled Conner4real, The Lonely Island crew -- Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone -- are heading to the big screen with a comedy mockumentary that appears to no longer have an official title, but Universal Pictures has set a release date. The Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie (Universal's words) will hit theaters on June 3, 2016 and will see Samberg star as a rapper (most likely named Conner4real) whose album bombs, leaving him with little career choice other than to re-form his old boy band. The film co-stars Tim Meadows as Samberg's manager along with James Buckley and Sarah Silverman. Production will wrap on the project at the end of this week. The comedy will face off against Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and the romance Me Before You starring Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin and Matthew Lewis. Bom »

'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' poster. With Daniel Radcliffe. Rupert Grint. Emma Watson. 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' quiz question: Does state-of-the-art CGI equal movie magic? (Oscar Movie Series) Alfonso Cuarón seems like an odd choice for director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third installment in the Harry Potter movie series. That is, if one thinks only of Cuarón's pre-Harry Potter sleeper hit, the François Truffaut-esque Y tu mamá también, while ignoring two of his earlier efforts, the critically acclaimed A Little Princess and the moderately respected Great Expectations. This time around, working with a reported $130 million budget (approx. $163 million in 2015), state-of-the-art special effects, and the Harry Potter franchise, Cuarón surely could do no wrong. At the box office, that is. For although Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is stylistically superior to Chris Columbus' previous work in the series, »

Matthew Lewis, best known for playing the role of Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, has become equally well-known for his epic transformation from chubby misfit to scorching-hot cover boy. Matthew appears in the June 2015 issue of the British magazine Attitude wearing little more than underwear and an open cardigan, and a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot was released on Tuesday. Last week, the sexy snaps got the attention of many - including the author of the Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling. After seeing the racy photos, the writer tweeted to Matthew, saying, "Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake," referring to Daniel Radcliffe going nude when he starred in the play in 2007.

Matthew Lewis is leaving very little to the imagination! The former "Harry Potter" star strips down for the June 2015 cover of Attitude magazine -- and he gives us an up close and personal look at his toned abs. Inside the mag, the 25-year-old actor, who played shy and clumsy Neville Longbottom in the film series, opens up about his newfound "hottie" status and how he got in even better shape for his new role in "Me Before You."

"I was excited I guess to go on the red carpet on the release »

I spoke to the director [Thea Sharrock] and I said it'd be nice to get into the mindset of someone like that, because he's not »

Speaking to Radio Times, the Harry Potter actor admitted that it's something he would love to be offered.
